Failing Grades and Repeating Courses

Failing Grades

VA pays for courses that are required and in pursuit* of degree programs. Any course in which an “F” grade is received will require a statement confirming last date of class attendance from instructor(s) and student. Last date of class attendance will be reported to VA as a punitive grade and will result in an overpayment to the student. Until our office is able to obtain a last date of attendance, future certifications cannot be processed.

*The term “pursuit” means to work, while enrolled, toward the objective of a program of education.

Repeating Courses

VA allows a one-time only recertification for a repeated course if the grade in the course does not meet graduation degree requirements (this excludes courses that are certified as electives). If after repeating a course, you receive another “F” grade and training time is affected, an overpayment will occur to the semester in which the “F” grade is excluded. If you have questions pertaining to the Repeat Policy please contact our office.
